Mikkei's New 80% Raw Bodybuilding Journal

#1 Postby mikkei » Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:04 pm

I'm starting a new training log. I have been fairly consistent for the last month and just ran a 10k yesterday (where I exceeded my expectations). I'm planning on using a training plan of heavy lifting (with Olympic lifts at the core) 4 days a week, running 2 or 3 days a week, and eating well and often all week. Planning to bulk up until spring and hopefully hit 150# (68kg or 10.71 stone) and then cut and shred before my wedding in July. I know running may ne counterproductive during annulling phase but I value being race-ready over packing in extra pounds, so it is what it is. As far as diet, I'm shooting for 80% raw foods with some non-raw protien powder, sweet potatoes, brown rice, etc.

I really want to make a commitment to post regulary and get back on the forum as well. Can't wait!

Yeaterday's race results: 37th overall. 6th in age group. 47:07. Not bad considering the lack of consistent race training. It was my first 10k (organized race) and it was pretty awesome. Overall winner was a 29 year-old at 35 minutes. Is it overly ambitious to shoot for that next year? I don't care!

Had some vega sport afterward and have been drinking extra water for recovery. I also got in 3 set SPF deadlifts @ 135# (61.25kg) x5 each set at home.

Yeah Buddy! Congratulations on the race!

Great to be back nearby and hanging out again!

Awesome workout last week. Let's hit up lunch, more workouts, Forks Over Knives movie and film some training videos at your house.

Can I get a Yeah Buddy?

Thanks bro!

When are we hitting the weights buddy?

Also, what day are you going to see Forks Over Knives?

Let's make an event out of it, get a small group together, etc.

How's training?

I'll have to get back to you on training. My gym membership inconveniently expired yesterday, so I have to wait until my work can get me onto their plan before I have access to the pearl again. Maybe Tuesday next week at my place? Hit the weights and the website after 7 maybe.

We should definitely make a thing out of Forks Over Knives! I'll let you know as soon as I can figure out when Shauna can come.

Training is good. Had an off day today. Yesterday I did deadlifts and homestyle t-bar rows in my garage.

Deadlifts:
135# x 6
185# x 5
155# x5
155# x5
155# x5

Makeshift T-bar Rows
Olympic barbell in the corner with 25# plate x 10
Olympic barbell in the corner with 25# plate x 10
Olympic barbell in the corner with 25# plate x 10
Olympic barbell in the corner with 25# plate x 10

NICE!

Gotta love those t-bar rows! They are awesome! The way they should be done.

Cool, just keep in touch about Forks, about workouts and about website.

Keep rocking bro.

Say hi to Shauna for me too. Hello from the Lean and Green man too!

Okay. So I haven't been posting (or training) as consistently as I wanted, but I'm still getting back into things. My gym membership expiring doesn't help either.

Last night I had a quick 10 minute workout in my home gym.

It was AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) in 10 minutes:
10 back squats w/ 45# bar
10 burpees
10 Hanging Snatches w/ 45# bar
10 second hold in plank position

I completed 3 rounds. Those burpees suck.

Thanks so much! While I am happy about it, it was only 37th out of about 300. I'm sure spring and summer races will be much tougher.

However, I'm totally stoked about running my second competitive 10k. Not sure when. I'm hoping I can do it in under 40 minutes. That may be absolute insanity, but I figure that with three months of training, warmer weather, better diet, and increased mental toughness, I have a chance of pulling it off.

just catching up on your new log and loving it mik!

If you want to run and not lose muscle I recommend doing most of your training anaerobically. Again not all of it but if you do traditional long slow distance your gonna lose the muscle most likely.

Great to have you back. Congrats on the awesome time. I think your goals are reachable! Looking forward to hearing all about it.

Sorry to hijack - Mary, does that mean doing shorter, intense intervals?

How about a "quick" 90-min training session with me this weekend?

Hope you got my note via Twitter or text that I have to be on TV Wed night so I'll miss out on our planned training session.....want to shoot for Fri, Sat, or Sun or multiple days over the weekend?

I'm happy to drive out to your place anytime as long as the roads are not icy. Just have TV Wed, a date on Thur for Forks Over Knives (you're totally welcome to join us!) and then I'll ready to do some filming, photos, training and site stuff on the weekend. Hope to even have some products for you :) Buddy!
